Written by Ronaldo Oregano   
Sunday, 23 August 2015
Javon Jackson, Jeremy Manasia, John Webber and Jimmy Cobb

We Four
, Javon Jackson’s project focusing on Coltrane-associated compositions. Jackson first gained attention with Art Blakey’s Jazz Messengers in the early ‘80s and had memorable stints with molten drummer Elvin Jones, a member of Coltrane’s “classic” quartet. Since emerging from these apprenticeships, Jackson has transcended his “young lion” status to become a noted composer and bandleader, heading up a dozen acclaimed sessions for Blue Note, Criss Cross and Palmetto.  We Four it features an impressive lineup. In addition to pianist Jeremy Manasia and bassist John Webber, this quartet also includes the legendary drummer Jimmy Cobb who worked with Coltrane when both were with Miles Davis 65 years ago but who sounds as good now as he did then. Hear them at Smoke on Friday, August 28th through Sunday, August 30th.
